hello its me again. As soon as i get the money im getting your book.  i havent changed the jewlery. the balls wont un screw at all. but im going to wait untill they heal better. b4 trying new jewlery i want rings thats why i wanted them changed because i have heard that rings are easyer to clean. I am also thinking of becoming a body art professional myself. Any tips?

If the bars you're wearing are of good quality and appropriate fit, you should leave them in place until you're thoroughly healed. If they fit properly, then you'll be able to clean just fine.

Yes! I've got TONS of tips on becoming a body art professional. In fact, I've got a whole book full. Once you've read it, if you have any questions feel free to contact me again. Please use the contact page or email me with questions. This guestbook is more for comments than questions.

If you know of any piercers at all in my area that would be suitable for me to get my hood pierced by that would be quite helpful. Please look in to it if you ever get the chance. I have been really wanting to get it done but after getting my nipples done and im pretty sure that they are pierced wrong im frightend to get another piercing here.

Hi Shanae, You're wise not to return to a piercer that has done a poor job.

All of my referral information is on this page: http://piercingbible.com/piercer-referrals

My brother is a tatoo artist. Just thought id let you know. I really love the look of your work. I want to get my hood done. vertical hood to be exact. I do not trust the piercers here. Do you think you will ever come to Moline or Rock island, IL? Im also thinking of getting the triangle genital piercing. Im almost completely sure that i have the correct build for them both. Oh and one more thing how much do you charge per piercing?

Hi Shanae, Thanks for the positive feedback about my body art; I appreciate it.

I don't have any plans to be in that area, but I will probably guest pierce in Chicago at some point.

When I do a piercing, the fee is $100. for the first piercing and $50. for additional piercings in the same session, plus jewelry.

So I have had my nipples pierced since Dec.31,2009. I am still having the white dishcharge stuff comming out of one of them and everytime i try to change the bars or take them out to clean them a little better the balls are on so tight that i cant even get them off. everytime i try they start bleeding and i have to restart the healing prosses over. Is this at all normal? Shouldnt they be healed better that what they are by now?

Hi Shanae,

Nipples can take a long time to heal and are prone to "ups and downs" during healing. If your piercings are still healing, the jewelry should not be changed at all. If your jewelry changes are causing bleeding then something is wrong! Are you using externally threaded barbells? They can damage the delicate tissue inside the channel. Here's a brief passage about that from The Piercing Bible:

Changing Jewelry Quality body jewelry can be worn indefinitely. If you like what you’re wearing, there is no need to change it. Most piercees don’t have the requisite know-how, dexterity, or sanitation to safely insert new jewelry into a healing piercing at home. A clumsy attempt to swap out the jewelry on a healing piercing can cause irritation, delayed healing, and infection. See a piercer if you experience problems; otherwise, your initial piece of jewelry should remain in your piercing until you are fully healed. Once you’re healed, however, it should be safe to replace your jewelry when all of the following conditions are met: • Your piercing is no longer secreting and getting crusty. • It is not tender. • The minimum healing time has passed (see “Minimum Healing Times Chart,” page 276).

Perhaps what you're seeing is sebum if it is a white discharge? Here's some information from my book about that:

Sebum is a substance from your oil glands that collects in healed piercing channels. It is a naturally occurring product of the body, containing fat, keratin (a fibrous protein), and cellular material.3 The purpose of sebum is to protect your skin and hair, keep it moisturized, and to inhibit the growth of microorganisms on the skin. People sometimes mistake it for pus, but it is more solid and cheeselike and has a distinctive rotten odor that reflects the dead cellular debris it contains.

Have you read my book? I think you'll find it extremely informative! Elayne

Hi Elayne!

All of your piercings and tattoos are amazingly beautiful! I have gone to Bink in Tallahassee for my rook, snug, and (as of yesterday) my nipples. He is amazing and I'm so glad you endorse him on your site. I've read through your book in his shop and plan to purchase it soon. Thanks so much for sharing all of your education and information you've gained on piercing. :)

-Kerry in Tallahassee, FL

Hi Kerry, Thanks so much for your comments. Glad to hear that you visited Bink and that he did a fantastic job on your piercings.

As professional piercer for 19 years I still find your information very helpful. Keep up the great work. www.dermagrafix.webs.com

Natasha Perez

I really want to pierce my VCH but don't want just anyone doing it... I have read everything on your site. Will you be in Seattle-Tacoma-Olympia, Wa With-in the next few weeks? PLEASE!! Thank You Natasha Perz~ Proud Military Wife!!

Hi Natasha, Sorry, I don't plan to be in that area any time soon. Have you checked your anatomy to be certain you are suitably built for a VCH piercing? Did you try the q-tip test as pictured on my page: http://piercingbible.com/female-genital-piercings#VCH

I haven't personally worked with any piercers in your area, but you can check the website for a local member of the Association of Professional Piercers. I'm the Medical Liaison for the organization. The APP is a non-profit organization dedicated to disseminating vital health and safety information about piercing to piercers, piercees, medical professionals, legislators, and the general public. http://www.safepiercing.org/locate-an-app-member/searchable-member-datab...

While some of the piercers on the list have taken my seminars at the annual APP conferences, I still wouldn't consider them to have been "trained by me," as those courses only last a few hours and aren't sufficient for providing a thorough education. Please meet the piercer and see if you develop a good rapport and if they inspire your confidence.

My book contains a great deal of information for everyone interested in piercing including all about evaluating piercers and studios, piercing placements, appropriate body jewelry sizes, styles, and materials, aftercare, troubleshooting, and much, much more. After reading it you'll be well qualified to evaluate and select a piercer.

I am likely to be piercing in your area at some point. If you would like to be notified when I make travel plans, please sign up for my free newsletter in the box on the left lower portion of this page: http://piercingbible.com/ It is an "opt-in" list, so I can't add you myself. My next trip is to New Orleans the last days of July and the first day of August. I also plan to pierce in Philadelphia some time this year.

Cassondra

Thank you for creating your site! I stumbled upon it and thank god I did! I've wanted a VCH for over two years now, but after I got my nippled pierced and found out it was done wrong, I'm skeptical about letting anyone pierce anything else lol, do you ever travel up north? I hope you come to new england!

I'll definitely be piercing in Philadelphia at some point this year. If you would like to be notified, please sign up for my newsletter in the box on the front page: http://piercingbible.com/

Ronni

OMG I was surfing and found you tonight and realized that the numnut who pierced my hood did it all wrong. I wished I had surfed way before hand because you were in my neck of the woods. Please Please come back to Texas you can even pierce at my home in Georgetown next time your here. I will be looking for you.

Hi Ronni, Sorry I missed you. Thanks for your interest. If you want to know when I make new plans to travel and pierce, please sign up for my email list on the front page of this website here: http://piercingbible.com/

Hi Elayne, why don't you cross the pond and come and pierce in London?! Thank you for writing your bible, it was fantastic, really readable as well as being informative. It is easy to see that this is your passion. Davina

Gaston J. Dahm

Hi, Elayne.

Got my copy of your wonderful "Piercing Bible" a few days ago. I am amazed: so much good, practical and helpful information, written in an excellent style! As a European, I think you should get your book translated into German and French, to spread your knowledge to the European continent (success would be guaranteed without any doubt). Thanks for sharing your knowledge and skills. Gaston

Hi Gaston, Thanks so much for all of he great feedback! I'd LOVE to have my book translated and distributed in different languages. However, that is up to the publisher.... I've shared your comments with them in hopes they will consider it. Elayne

Alex

Hi Elayne, Just wanted to let you know that your website is really helpful! I saw on your upcoming event that you'll be in waco/austin in a few weeks. I've been considering a VCH for a long time and happened across your page today and all your references, and then come to find out you'll be a couple of hours away from me in a few weeks so it seems like fate. Hah! I was wondering what kind of price to be expecting before I make an appointment and schedule a road trip out there

Alex, I would be delighted to pierce you so send me a message through the contact page and we will set up an appointment!

Courtney

Hi Elyayne. Yur website is VERY informative! I am glad you took the time to make it so that people like me can make informative decisions on what type of piercing we want done. I have been trying to find a piercer in New Orleans that is as skilled as you (searched BMEzine) but of course I cant find any recommendations. I did seee that you will be in Waco and Austin so I might have to make that trip during the weekend of the 12th! If you could please contact me in regards to the triangle piercing. I have a VCH done and had a clit piercing done but i wasnt happy with it. I look forward to hearing from and hopefully meeting you soon!

-Courtney

Courtney, I'd be happy to respond, but you didn't provide your email address. Please send me a message using the contact form.
